Licensed to Grill: Ribfest 2017

Cornwall, ON – July 22, 2017The sauciest event of the year is back! Ribfest is coming to Cornwall on July 27-30 for a weekend full of entertainment and juicy ribs. It’s free admission, free parking and free music. Isn’t that awesome?

The Ribfest circuit has been one of the most successful events in North America these past years. 2017 will be no different! Previous years, Cornwall’s Ribfest attracted thousands of people, and Cornwall’s 2017 Ribfest is probably the most anticipated summer event.

There will be fun for the whole family! A beer garden for mom and dad, and carnival rides and a free kids zone for the kids. There will also be live entertainment throughout the weekend.

Nothing sounds better to me than enjoying the day on the waterfront, listening to great music, holding a beer in one hand and holding a rack of ribs in the other. I’m sure this sounds pretty great to you too. So come on down to Lamoureux Park on July 27-30 for a weekend of awesome entertainment and even better food.

All proceeds go to the Optimist Club who is heavily involved with helping local youths.  They provide youth programs and community service projects. Join us at Ribfest and support this organization.
